What I Like About Affilorama
There are lots of training programs out there but for complete beginners this one pretty much nails it. The content is well laid out and easily accessible. There is a great “Introduction to Affiliate Marketing” section and this is broken out into a number of videos which include topics such as…
- Affiliate Marketing For Beginners
- How To Find Affiliate Programs
- Examples of Affiliate Sites: How Are They Making Money?
- and more
If you’re at the very beginning of your IM journey Affilorama is a great place to start. I found the content easy to digest and then put into action.
What I Don’t Like About Affilorama
Of course being free you certainly can’t complain about the cost. If you’ve already got a good grasp of IM some of the content may seem a bit basic for you but then it is aimed at beginners. If you’re after a premium version then AffiloBlueprint is probably more suited to you. You might find the Kiwi accents in the videos a bit odd (the company is based in New Zealand)…but hey…I’m an Aussie…so I probably sound odd too! Apart from that I don’t have any complaints.
Affilorama Premium offers a more advanced level of training and essential tools over the basic free membership. It features in-depth training videos (including special how-to videos with Mark) and free web hosting for up to 15 domains. There is a 30 day trial available for only a buck.
Once you’ve covered the basics by completing the training in Affilorama, you’ll probably find you want to step up a gear and start growing your affiliate marketing business. This is where AffiloBlueprint comes in. It gives you a step-by-step guide to how to create a successful affiliate website. AffiloBlueprint teaches you how to make and design a site, how to monetize it and how to drive traffic to it. Basically AffiloBlueprint is a premium membership program that takes the confusion and mystery away for new affiliates. It includes…
- Hosting for up to 5 websites
- Custom-built WordPress theme
- 12 part video series on how to create an affiliate website
- Over 85 video lessons
- Access to support staff
- Free trial of AffiloTools (see below)
For advanced affiliates AffiloBlueprint is also a great resource for PPC marketing and growing your email lists.
DFY Affiliate Marketing – AffiloJetpack 2.0
AffiloJetpack 2.0 is essentially a DFY (Done For You) program that takes the confusion out of content creation and quickly builds affiliate websites that convert. You can forget about outsourcing because it’s all there for you, including all the content for 5 niches (selected from 18 choices).
Using AffiloJetpack is pretty straight forward and newbie-friendly. Each “Jetpack” is a complete website kit, with everything you need to build your websites and step-by-step instructions on how to go about it. You get 100 emails (Mark places particular emphasis on email marketing and autoresponders), article research packs, graphics, the custom-made AffiloTheme, website hosting for one year and three e-books/reports to offer to your subscribers.
You also get access to a website builder which will basically create your website for you. Domain setup and hosting are taken care of as is installation of WordPress and the AffiloTheme. The website builder also includes a Fluttermail email account and pre-installation of the 100-email autoresponder with your affiliate links automatically added in for you! All in all, AffiloJetpack 2.0 is a DFY affiliate marketing system that takes the stress out of making money online.
What I Don’t Like About AffiloJetpack 2.0
My only criticism of AffiloJetpack 2.0 is that it only includes free hosting for one website and not all 5 Jetpacks. You also need to register your own domains. But hosting and domain registration aren’t big expenses in the overall scheme of things and this does allow you to shop around and find the best services that meet your needs. These are the only additional costs… AffiloJetpack 2.0 comes with everything else you need to make a successful affiliate website.
AffiloTools is an exclusive subscription service. You can purchase a trial subscription for $1 for the first month. Aimed at intermediate and advanced affiliates it includes a wide range of Internet marketing tools such as keyword research, ranking monitor, link finding and many more. It also includes hosting of up to 15 websites.
AffiloTheme is a premium WordPress theme which comes with 6 child themes and offers a complete solution for building profitable affiliate websites. It features built-in tools for header creation and updating the design. You can also create squeeze pages, opt-in forms, pop-overs and exit pops. AffiloTheme is included with AffiloBlueprint and AffiloJetpack as part of the package but can be purchased separately.
Who Is Mark Ling?
Affilorama is the brainchild of Mark Ling. Mark is an Internet Marketer whose online businesses generate an annual income of 8 figures. While he was still in college Mark decided that being a poor student basically sucked, so having heard about affiliate marketing…with all it’s income-producing opportunities…he decided to give it a try. He discovered that he was a natural at it, and within 12 months he was making several thousand dollars a week.
Then a friend introduced him to a twist…which he tried…and his income soared. That was in the good old days of affiliate marketing where things were pretty easy. But then he was hit by the dreaded “Google Slap”…and his income tumbled.
Being involved in the SEO industry myself for many years (I was a digital analyst for a major SEO company)…I know all about the Google Slap!
Mark was so discouraged he almost gave up. But he gave it one more go…adopted new and revised strategies…and became one of the most successful Internet Marketers in the game. From there he developed his training programs and tools.
Mark runs regular webinars on affiliate marketing. Well worth sitting in if you have the time. Registration is free…
- Webinar 1 – How to Make $10,000/Month Online
- Webinar 2 – 7 Ways to Drive Floods of Online Traffic
- Webinar 3 – 3 Step Strategy for Making 112K per Month
If you’re not sure where to start with affiliate marketing…confused about what works and what doesn’t…or concerned about spending money to get your business started…then Affilorama is a great way to start your journey without spending any money at all. The information is solid…and it’s being provided by someone who really walks the walk. And if you’re the type of person who likes all the hard stuff done for you and want to invest in a complete affiliate marketing system then you really should check out AffiloJetpack 2.0.
